What happens at my first consultation?

Physiotherapy and Remedial Massage Therapy initial consultations involve the assessment and treatment of an individual’s reported signs and symptoms as well as physical abilities. Initial assessments typically involve a thorough verbal component followed by a hands-on component. Assessments and treatments are individualised to each client and are conducted in a private area. Treatment will be tailored specifically to your needs and based on current evidence based best practice. Treatment may include joint mobilisation, soft tissue release, needle point therapy, exercises, hydrotherapy, electrotherapeutic modalities such as ultrasound and T.E.N.S and self management techniques. Optimal improvement relies on the client being an active participant in their program.

Podiatry initial consultations involve a thorough history of the clients condition followed by a visual and hands on examination of the problematic area. For clients with biomechanical pain a video analysis may also be taken for the assessment of walking and running. For diabetic clients a Doppler may be performed for diagnostic purposes. Treatment will then be discussed and implemented dependent upon the problem and needs of the client.
